Chief Burdock Muldoon (1429 [debatable] - 1490) was Chief of the Wizards' Council either in the fourteenth[2] or fifteenth century.[1]


Early life

It is debated whether Muldoon was born in 1429 or about a century earlier. He presumably attended Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry in his youth, like so many other wizards.

As Chief of the Wizards' Council

Muldoon attempted to define all magical creatures as either a Being or a Beast, on the simple premise that any member of the magical community that walked on two legs were Beings, and all others were Beasts. However, when he called the first meeting of all Beings to discuss new magical laws, the summit was disrupted by Diricawls, Augureys, Fwoopers, Pixies and Fairies who could not understand what was going on, Trolls who proceeded to smash apart the meeting chamber with their clubs and hags who glided around the place in search of children to eat. Muldoon, as Chief of the Council, stood up to open the meeting, but slipped on Porlock dung and ran cursing from the hall.[2]

Embittered with the incident, Muldoon forswore any further attempts to integrate non-wizard members of the magical community into the Wizards' Council.[2]
